3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet Baby Jesus! What a beer. Picked up this beauty out of pure intrigue. Chocolate and peanut butter, I was interested to see how they worked together as a porter. Upon opening it had an uncanny resemblance to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, it pours inky black with a quickly fading tan head. On tasting it was more of one of those trendy Starbucks drinks that incorporates a blood thickening amount to caramel. On the pallet it presents notes of burnt oat and malts that generates a nice mellow lingering finish. Not usually a fan of porters but this one was velvety smooth like an Oscar Wilde jacket.

Thanks to my local AZ crew for hooking up this bottle. I get some peanut butter notes, dry chocolate notes, some bitter earthy flavors. I was hoping for a wow, but I got a beer that’s just above average.

Smells and taste like a peanut butter cup. Don't know how many I could drink before becoming cloying. But the one I had was delicious.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange to brown with a small white head. Aroma is sugarish peanut butter. Perfumed peanut. Dry and roasted malty. Herbal and dry into the finish. Perfumed lasting impression.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. A lightly unclear dark brown beer topped by a dark beige head. The aroma is very peanut-ish, with mashed bananas in the back. A faint chocolate and coffee touch blends in. Feels pretty sweaty actually. The flavor is chocolatey and peanut buttery, with some banana. Roasted malts too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. Sure a weird one, but fun to taste. Can’t imagine I will be able to drink a bottle on my own. 140228

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are peanut butter, caramel, chocolate syrop, little coffee and hops. Sweet and a bit odd.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A little disappointed. Pours a dark brown with foamy head. At first, I loved the nose...some roasted malt, peanut butter. But the more I smelled of it, the less I liked it. Taste seems artificial to me - yes, some peanut bitter, licorice and bitterness on the finish, but I also got a lingering, soapy aftertaste. Meh.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a nice 1/2 finger tan head, dark brown body. The smell was inviting! Smelt like Cocoa Puffs with Peanut butter! The taste was espresso, strong! Also a slight nuttiness and some chocolate. Slick, smooth palate. This has a great aroma, wish to have more PB in taste!
